As an anime fan, there are days that I really look forward to. Of those days, Saturday morning is by far the most excited I get. The reason for that is because of anime episodes like My Hero Academia episode 110. After having to slog my way through anime like I’m Standing on a Million Lives, I can appreciate an anime episode like this one so much more.
Where can I watch My Hero Academia episode 110?
I like watching this anime over at Crunchyroll. I’m just a loyal fan to the anime streaming site so it’s always my first choice if they’re carrying it. There has to be a compelling reason for me to switch to some other site. For instance, if you check out some of my reviews of Naruto you’ll see that I watch over at Netflix because they have the English dub and they also have the “Skip Intro” button. Neither of those things come into play here so I like to stick with my favorite site.
Because MHA episode 110 is available at Crunchyroll, it’s also available over at VRV. VRV has an agreement with Crunchyroll that allows at least some of Crunchyroll’s content to be streamed on their site. One of those anime is My Hero Academia. While I personally wouldn’t go to their site to watch, since I’m already watching at Crunchyroll, it might be worth it for you to give it a look.
Where else can I find it?
Another good place to find episode 110 is Funimation. For those who might not know, Funimation has purchased Crunchyroll. For now the two sites are separate, but we’ll have to wait and see if that stays the case. It should take some time for the two streaming sites to fully integrate with each other. With that the case, I’ll treat Funimation as its own entity for now. As such, you can catch the latest episodes of MHA there.
Finally, you can see episode 110 at Hulu. This is typically my last option on the list, as I don’t have the upgraded membership to Hulu. If you have the basic membership you still have to sit through some commercial breaks. Why would I do that if I’ve already got access to an anime commercial free? It’s lucky for Hulu that I got their service through the Disney+ package. It’s still an option, though, so it should be mentioned.
How was the story in My Hero Academia episode 110?
The main focus of the story here in MHA episode 110 was Jin Bubaigawara, more commonly known as “Twice.” Twice is the villain that drove himself mad because he made a bunch of clones of himself and lost touch on which one was the real him. Episode 110 gives us a little more of his story, and you really can’t help but feel sorry for the guy.
Orphaned in middle school, Twice has a series of bad luck which leads him down a path of crime. He sinks further and further into loneliness and depression until Giran hooks him up with the League of Villains. It’s a story that I think a lot of people can recognize. Twice really isn’t a bad person, he’s just been driven into a life of crime because of circumstances. You almost feel happy for him that he finally found some friends in the other members of the League.
Why did the story make such a big deal of Twice’s friends in the League of Villains?
It was good of My Hero Academia episode 110 to highlight how important the League of Villains was to Twice because it brought emotional weight behind Twice’s actions. You understood why Twice was willing to risk his life to save Toga from getting her neck snapped. It also helped explain why Twice was finally able to overcome his fear of making doubles of himself. There is nothing in the world more important to Twice than his friends. He’ll do anything to make sure that they stay safe.
The results of all of this is that we get to see just how dangerous Twice’s quirk really is. He’s basically a swarm of ants, or possible a all consuming blob. Twice could be a monster movie villain in a different setting, if he really wanted to. All of a sudden, the overwhelming numbers disadvantage that the League of Villains has is wiped away. Twice can make up for it all by himself. You can feel the momentum start to shift in the favor of the League.
What do you think of these developments?
Considering we already know that the League and the Meta Liberation Army are going to join forces, I knew something had to even the odds. The only thing left to be determined is how the two organizations come to a truce. There’s also the impending interruption of Gigantomachia. Now that is something that I don’t want to miss!
As far as how everything with Twice went, I think MHA episode 110 did a great job in developing his character. After getting through this episode, you come away with a feeling that he’s both dangerous and sympathetic. My wish is that he could somehow be reformed to live a more normal and productive life. Before anyone responds, yes, I have read the manga and I know what happens. I’m not going to spoil that here.
It feels like the story in My Hero Academia episode 110 set out to develop Twice as a character and I think that it accomplished that. I know that I want to see more from him in the future. I also care about him as a character, even though he’s part of the League. It’ll be interesting to see where he goes from here.
What did My Hero Academia episode 110 get right?
The way MHA episode 110 opened really set the tone for how the rest of the episode was going to go. Having to watch as Skeptic ordered his puppets to break Toga’s neck was intense. Watching Twice’s reaction to what was going on in front of him was even more so. It was enough to make you forget that the League of Villains are actually the main bad guys of this anime.
That feeling gets reinforced a few times throughout episode 110. Twice’s concern for Giran, Twice’s clones showing up as reinforcements for Dabi and Mr. Compress and finally Gigantomachia’s departure for the battlefield all help muddy the waters of who’s supposed to be good and who’s supposed to be bad. In reality, both sides are bad, it’s just that the Meta Liberation Army are new on the scene. I don’t want a new evil organization taking the spot of the League of Villains! I want to see Izuku Midoriya vs Shigaraki as my series finale!
Were there any specific moments that you enjoyed?
I actually really liked Gigantomachia’s small appearance in My Hero Academia episode 110. It wasn’t much, but it’s important to the overall plot of this fight. From the start the League of Villains is trying to stall for time so that Gigantomachia can arrive at Deika city. That seems like an impossible task since it’s still over an hour before Gigantomachia is supposed to wake up.
That hour time limit won’t come into play after what happened here. Dr. Garaki does the League a favor and wakes up Gigantomachia so he can head to the battlefield. Gigantomachia is off like a bullet and we’re left with a feeling of impending doom. I can’t help but anticipate an epic arrival for overpowered monster and that’s one of my favorite things in anime! I don’t even care that he’s a villain. Gigantomachia’s arrival should be a lot of fun to watch!
Really, big entrances are one of the things that I love the most about anime. When I think back to the first time I watched Dragon Ball Z it was one of the things that initially drew me to liking anime. Goku’s arrival to fight Napa and Vegeta will always be etched into my memory. Now I get to anticipate another big arrival. Hopefully I won’t have to wait long.
What did My Hero Academia episode 110 get wrong?
I was focused so much on what was going on right in this episode that I didn’t notice anything wrong. There’s possibly a plot hole somewhere or a logical inconsistency, but I didn’t notice it the first time around. My Hero Academia episode 110 also gets the benefit of the doubt from me. The anime as a whole hasn’t been insulting or bad, so I’m not on the lookout for more poor content. I wish I could say the same thing for the other anime that I’m watching.
Is My Hero Academia episode 110 worth watching?
Yes. My Hero Academia episode 110 is worth watching. Twice’s story is compelling. If the rest of MHA season 5 is this good then I’ll continue to look forward to waking up at 5:30 AM on Saturday. I’m not sure there are a lot of other anime out there that’d I’d be happy to do that for. It’d be a short list for sure.
My Hero Academia episode 110 does a good job of making the entire episode interesting. I didn’t even get into Re-Destro’s fight with Shigaraki. There’s also Dabi’s fight with Geten. There’s so much going on here that it can’t all fit into one review. I’ll be excited to see more from next week’s episode. Speaking of that…

It’s Shigaraki’s turn to have an episode dedicated to his backstory. We’re told that he finally remembers his life before All For One took him in. We’ll get the story of Tenko Shimura, the grandson of All Might’s master and previous holder of One For All. How does Shigaraki’s past influence his present? We should find that out.
More than that, we should also get a good fight between Shigaraki and Re-Destro. It looks like Re-Destro pushes Shigaraki to his limit, but we’re left with an impression that Shigaraki goes beyond his limits and saves himself. Will there be an interruption from Gigantomachia as well? I sure hope so! We’ll just have to wait until next week to see all of what happens!
Now go watch some anime!
